Hi,

MONTANARO: Look. Polls are snapshots in time. They're not meant to be predictive. And in 2 of the last 3 competitive Democratic races, the same person leading in the polls in both states a month out won the contest. But a caveat here - the results are often very different than those poll numbers a month earlier.

(This comes from npr.org transcript With A Month To Go Before Iowa And New Hampshire, Anything Can Happen on January 3, 2020.)

Does the blue part mean "a month later"? Is it to OK to put it at the end without changing the meaning, that is, the same person leading in the polls in both states won the contest a month out/later?

Thanks in advance!

    the same person leading in the polls in both states a month out won the contest.

    ----> In this context, can I understand this way: the same person leading in the polls in both states a month before the contest won the contest?
